Who is Whom?
What mother can't tell their babies apart? A unworthy one, that's for sure! Other than dyeing the tip of CB's ear (or bleaching it), this was the only solution I could think of. Manny has a big white spot on his belly, and CB's fur is silkier and his tail fluffier, and he's heavier than Manny. But I cannot pick them up to look at their undercarriage all the time, and two black cats next to each other at dawn or dusk are impossible...for me...to differentiate.
The joy of having these two brofurs in our lives, outweighs my mortification at collaring them. They apparently don't care, and I now can tell one from the other. And don't go all 'pink is for girls' on us; we are an open-minded, fly-the-rainbow-flag kind of tolerant household!
